Nice place in a quiet residential zone for a quiet stay away from the touristy, overpriced, noisy Poblado party district. The breakfast is very good I heard (since I only tried the cooked omelette). The dorm is depressing compared to the rest of the other rooms. Quite near the metro and supermarket. Stayed there April 2014.

Nice place if you want a quiet stay in Medellin, away from touristy, overpriced and noisy Poblado.The owner and the staff are very cool, it is clean, wifi works well, the breakfast is very good, fresh fruits, omelet, bread, good jam, real butter and coffee. Another shower would have been great but it is ok, the dorm has nothing special... More

The good: excellent breakfast and employees, very close to metro, inexpensive privates. The bad: no bar or tvs ensuite as advertised, not much nearby, very hard bed! Ok stay but probably would stay in a different part of the city next time.

Excellent breakfast (fresh juice, coffee, eggs, bread, and fruit), great location in a peaceful neighborhood next to the metro (but close to restaurants etc.), and friendly, helpful hosts (including proprietor Vince, who shared with us some of his awesome French quiche, and others). Nice peaceful and friendly atmosphere, with two great hostel dogs. The metal bunk beds in the 6... More

Great hostel owned by French Vincent with free breakfast. One 6 dorm and 5 double private room. It is clean and safe with 2 sweet dogs around. Then very close to the metrostop Floresta. After 22/23 o clock is the hostel quite. So good hostel for active days.

Breakfast is great (though an absence of milk for coffee over 3 days was surprising) and the space is comfortable. Location right next to La Floresta station is great. Don't stay here if the sight of shirtless Frenchmen lounging around all day and the smell of dog on old furniture bothers you!

If you are looking to party all day/night with young backpackers this place is NOT for you! Located in the quiet, safe, upscale neighborhood of La Floresta, this hostel is a sanctuary in Medellin. It is run by an affable Frenchman who prepares a wonderful breakfast - included with the nightly rate (omelette, fresh fruit saldad, juice, bread, coffee). This... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel in May for two nights. There were no privates left as it was busy so we slept in the 6 bedroom dorm (which was no problem as its not a party hostel so it was an extremely good nights sleep). From the minute we walked in we were greeted by the owner... More

This is a great hostel with the best free breakfast and in a good location. Heads-up it will cost you $15.000 pesos to take a taxi from the south bus terminal and $9.000 from the north bus terminal. The north bus terminal you have the option of taking the Metro, Vince will give you details. Enjoy your stay, I did.
